I'm new around here - just been searching for dealing with grief of a lost bunny. We lost our little man, our little buddy, Kobol, on Sunday morning. He was 5 1/2 years old, and we'd had him for almost 5 years. We'd taken him to the vet as a precaution as he hadn't eaten for a few hours. They kept him in to monitor him, give him meds, and syringe feed him to get his gut moving. Unfortunately, on Sunday morning, while they were administering meds and feeding him, he had a seizure and he passed away. There were no signs of anything else wrong with him before that. I miss him like absolutely crazy. The house is so quiet without him. We've spent 5 years in a routine with him for bedtime, letting him out, feeding him etc. I miss his little face popping up onto the sofa out of nowhere. It makes me feel sick to think I'll never see him again. I don't really know why I'm posting - I guess I want to share with people who may understand how I'm feeling. Does anyone have any advice on how to start processing things?? Every little reminder of him just makes me sob at the moment :(

I’m so sorry for the loss of your little buddy Kobol. Bunnies are the most magical animals. I found this site for comfort when we lost our bunny 4.5 months ago. I carry a lot of guilt but time is helping. I miss her so much. She was an outdoor girl but she had the roam of the garden. I can relate to how you feel about loosing your routine. My routine every day revolved around seeing and feeding her. I used to get excited coming home to see her. I think at the moment it’s just about getting through each day the best you can, it’s still so soon for you, it might not feel like it now but time really does help, I’m still finding it hard but the pain isn’t nearly as bad as it was those first few weeks. Try to be kind to yourself and look after yourself. Finding this website really helped me, it’s knowing you’re not alone and people are kind and understanding on here. Someone who also lost a bunny reached out to me on this site and her support has really helped. Please keep in touch if you want to talk. I do get how hard it is. I hope you can find comfort knowing what a great life you gave Kobol and the immense love you gave him, sadly so many buns are not this fortunate. My thoughts are with you.
